This morning's entires to the Steorn.net forums
Captains blog, supplemental
Taking time out from free energy and anti-gravity to touch base with supervenience at the cusp of the morning.
Yeah – in another forum or mag the poll showed much the same result – women almost always referred to the pill or durex , while men went for transistors or the scientific method or the steam or democracy. Hero of Alexandria had the steam engine 2000 years ago, but as they had slaves they only needed to apply it to toys like opening the temple doors to awe the masses at mass by depressing a panel on the altar. And the Greeks had a clockwork computer before Christ – here from the Steorn add mag: http://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=1337165
Maybe consciousness was the greatest invention ever, patented by God. From that, all else flows.
As I cycled yesterday, wondered why the Greeks didn’t invent a bicycle – or maybe they did, but robes got caught in the gears.
Did anyone mention the flint, as developed by handyman homo habilis. Homo erectus took it and ran with it for a million years, always perfecting it but never going further. It took Homo sap to have multiple Eureka experiences… art was invented then: maybe art for art’s sake was mightier than the flint. Put that in your pipe, Fred and smoke it.
lol - I was just about to post 'the condom' when I read that post. Chastening to know that one is so predictable.
Yes, it just shows that men ignore what women want mostly. Hopefully free energy will help women as much as the nobel prize bank in Bangladesh

This in turn is bullshit. Just finished Playfair’s section of the ‘Geller Effect’ and he pointed out that no matter how often Geller did his trick on film and caused unprecedented readings on scientific apparatus, the short memory idiot public or pseudo-sceptics always recall only the one time he was caught supplementing his powers by cheating. But that doesn’t nullify the 100 times that no cheating was possible e.g. in bending a heavy key on camera (or was it for David Bohm?) that not even a hammer could straighten out
